Abstract: Cement is still the dominant binder supply for concrete industry. The most important environment and health issues facing the cement industry are greenhouse gas emissions and atmospheric releases, primarily of carbon dioxide. Cement production is highly energy intensive process involving significant environmental damage with respect to carbon dioxide production. This review paper presents the usage of pozzolan such silica fume, metakaolin and fly ash as a supplementary cementation material that induces sustainability to concrete by reducing the carbon dioxide emission of cement production. In additional, review is also done on the effectiveness of metakaolin, silica fume and fly ash on the compressive strength related to durability of high performance concretes.
